Physical therapy is a health profession whose practitioners are involved in the treatment of abnormalities of the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems. Persons who are disabled as a result of pain, disease, injury or developmental delay are evaluated by a physical therapist who then plans and administers an appropriate therapeutic program. Rehabilitation of individuals with cardiac or pulmonary disease also involves physical therapy in the recovery process.
